My experience has been that most practicing Catholics are conservative.
Although you have many nutjobs that claim to be christians, if they are not Catholic they don't get assigned to any affiliation, nor do they generally claim one. They are just agnostics that like the trappings of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and a church wedding. However, when these same people were baptised Catholic, they decide to continue claiming they are Catholic, while simultaneously denouncing the Church for its fundamental beliefs, "And they are authorities about it, because they are Catholic."
We are Baptist, but have some family who are Catholic. Baptists do not claim roots in the Catholic Church. Valid disclaimerm which cannot be proven or proven false.
I/we are certainly not agnostic.
I do despise Commies and Lefttis Liars in general.
